Steven S. DeKnight is interested in creating a Moon Knight series


Pacific Rim Uprising just hit theaters but director Steven S. DeKnight is already looking for a new project — Moon Knight.

He, among many others, has expressed interest in bringing beloved vigilante Moon Knight to the silver screen. A television show centered around Moon Knight has been brought up the past few years but so far nothing has come of it.

In a recent interview with IGN, DeKnight spoke about future projects he would like to undertake. Considering he was the showrunner for Netflix’s Daredevil, he was asked about a future in the MCU.

"There are so many characters that I love in the Marvel universe. Really, for me, it would be about schedule. My schedule these days, as you imagine, is a little tight. God, you know, when I signed onto Daredevil, I expressed an interest in Iron Fist and the Punisher, which I both loved. I’d love to see Moon Knight get a little bit of love. Great, great character."

It seems like the director might have a magic eight ball considering both Iron Fist and The Punisher were brought to Netflix. The idea of a Moon Knight television show has been floating around for quite some time. He’s a street-level hero with a touch of mysticism which makes him a perfect fit for the streaming service.

Unfortunately, the state of Marvel shows on Netflix seems to be a bit up in the air.

If the partnership between the two entertainment giants has come to a close, then it seems unlikely a Moon Knight movie will come to fruition. Luckily, James Gunn has already pitched an idea for a movie to Marvel Studios.

Fans were quick to point out that the character would really only work in a series where his mental state could be fully explored.

Last year, there were rumors that Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, and Blade would be joining the MCU. Only Robbie Reyes joined Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which made many question the validity of the rumors.

There’s a chance that the discussion to bring the other two is still ongoing with Marvel Television trying to decide how to introduce them. Neither would be a good fit for the more light-hearted direction of the other Marvel series.

DeKnight has partnered with Netflix before for Daredevil, so maybe there is a chance for his own show. He would have a better shot than many others to get the streaming service and Marvel in the same room. For now, fans will have to hold out hope someone is just as passionate about bringing Moon Knight to life.
